    "What akuma619 wrote above."

    March 15, 2015  |   By kdacus

    Version: Mipony 2.2.1

    Pros

    Nothing at all.

    Cons

    Not a virus; a virus portal as such, so difficult to catch

    "Malware Laden Junk"

    February 10, 2015  |   By akuma_619

    Version: Mipony 2.2.1

    Pros

    Used to be a very good download manager

    Cons

    It's absolute crap now. Tries to install a lot of malware when you first install it. Then after you install it now it always tries to download and install a virus posing as flash or java in the web browser feature it automatically opens to. What a piece of ****. The developers should be ashamed of themselves and hope they go out of business for pulling this shady crap.

    "has foistware, installs a toolbar & resets home page"

    November 12, 2013  |   By doug1296

    Version: Mipony 2.1

    Pros

    Don't know as it wouldn't install w/o accepting foistware.

    Cons

    There were 3-4 screens during the installation where I had to decline foistware. Then got to a point during the installation where I had to install a search engine. Without doing so the program wouldn't install. I cancelled the installation. After cancelling it I found that a toolbar had been automatically installed. I removed that via REVO. Then I found that my homepage for IE was set to Yahoo search, and, the Yahoo search page was added to Chrome as a second home page. Changed IE's & Chrome's settings to get my homepage back. Beware!

    "How do I get rid of this??"

    November 4, 2013  |   By Uzume13

    Version: Mipony 2.1

    Pros

    I can think of no benefits of downloading this - use something else.

    Cons

    This was required to download a programme and since then, I have had pop ups galore - also despite deleting it (or so I thought), the pop ups re-started and I scoured my programmes to discover mipony updater had somehow appeared! I can't seem to get rid of this darn thing and every pop up is, according to my pop up manager, a 'suspicious' site.

    Summary

    I would avoid! Nothing but trouble since using this!

    "Great tool for downloading from file-hosting sites"

    July 18, 2013  |   By MisterZackMan

    Version: Mipony 2.0.5

    Pros

    Overall good software, has neat features like auto rar extraction.
    All you have to do is copy the lnk and it will auto detect to download.

    Cons

    can't use auto rar extraction when it is a split file

    Summary

    really good software, make downloading from file hosting sites that much convenient.

    "Spyware, toolbars and bloatware."

    July 10, 2013  |   By Bherus

    Version: Mipony 2.0.5

    Pros

    It didn't utterly destroy my computer?

    Cons

    Everything else. It installed loads of junk without asking; Norton flagged it up as containing spyware before it was finished even installing.

    Summary

    Does anyone actually download this thing on purpose? Certainly not me! I was looking for my favourite downloader and was duped into downloading this instead.

    "It's like a visit from an unwanted relative"

    March 31, 2013  |   By rosweed

    Version: Mipony 2.0.4

    Pros

    No redeeming value whatsoever.

    Cons

    I cannot get rid of it. I try to uninstall update for mipony download manager and I'm told I don't have the permissions to delete it.

    Summary

    I can't find this thing in my registry or my c drive. My next step is to try a virus or malware scan. I have wasted far too much time on this nasty s**t.

    "Bad experience"

    February 18, 2013  |   By cnmoore

    Version: Mipony 2.0.4

    Pros

    Fast and easy installation.

    Cons

    It appeared to install unwanted programs including adware. When I removed the adware my PC couldn't boot.

    "I had such high hopes."

    January 25, 2013  |   By becksterorange

    Version: Mipony 2.0.3

    Pros

    Not as bulky as Jdownloader.

    Cons

    Doesn't work with Ryushare.

    Summary

    I have been using Jdownloader for years now. I works pretty well but it is a major resource hog. I have been waiting for something lighter that does the same thing to come along. Then I found mipony. I use Ryushare and mipony does not recognize my account even though there is a option for it in the premium menu. I search for a solution and it appears that I am not the only one with this problem and it also doesn't work with other sites. Oh well. I'll just hold onto it and check for updates with the hope that it'll work for me one day. If it did work with Ryushare, it would be far superior to Jdownloader.

    "Best Download Manager I've ever used"

    October 8, 2011  |   By greeva

    Version: Mipony 1.5.1

    Pros

    Can easily handle 10 downloads at a time, even from different sharing sites. Will automatically sign you in to any file sharing site if you saved it in Mipony. Above average in download speed, a taskbar popup lets you know when a link is finished

    Cons

    The control ribbon could be explained a little better for beginners, but once you get it it's as simple as copy and paste.
